Youth - Movie Review

Matthew Brady - wrote on 03/31/2016

"Youth" is a visual beauty of a film, that's basically show and don't tell. This is the definition of art, with it's gorgeous cinematography and how the film explores love, humanity, wisdom and pain in it's main story. Michael Caine, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano and Harvey Keitel all give terrific performances.

The movie dose have some pacing issues as I felt like some scenes dragged out a little bit, but I'm not sure if that's done on purpose or by mistake since this movie is out of it's mind when it comes to it's style of film making. Some people may think that this movie is too pretentious (some of the reviews I've seen), but I didn't think it was and it didn't bother me that much.

I highly recommend seeing "Youth" if you like movies that are dreamlike and very focus on it's visuals.

Youth gipfelt mit einem wundervollen Medley, das den Titel trägt "Simple Songs": "I've got a feeling. I live near. I live for you now." Nichts könnte besser passen zu diesem grossen …
